Opera North’s ‘Cosí’ loves beauty and hilarity | Vermont Arts
Only Mozart could combine hilarity and pure beauty with the extremes of both, and he never did so more than in his comic opera “Cosí fan tutte”. And Opera North reveled in those qualities in its production – ridiculously funny and sublimely beautiful – which opened Thursday at Blow-Me-Down Farm Cornish, New Hampshire.
And under a tent! The opera was enjoyed by audiences on three sides of the stage where the singers – unamplified – could be seen and heard intimately and gloriously.
